Not only do they have to pay to use the phone but they've been switching to video calling to both justify raising the rate and limiting actual visitation rights
@Unionhawk Excellent
 
1:18 AM
@TimStone dude was dedicated. Didn't take the head off until the end
We watched him drink a gatorade through it
 
1:47 AM
(this is an actual quote from the article please direct all complaints to the editor)
 
2:05 AM
Ah, not that this is at all surprising in retrospect but of course Grassley has a farm, for which he'll get bailout money
Could have just stopped the President from doing a bunch of trade wars of course but no this makes much more sense

Parents are poisoning their children with bleach to ‘cure’ autism; these moms are trying to stop it kristv.com/news/national-news/2019/05/25/…
> The parents in many of these groups, which have ranged from tens to tens of thousands of members, believe that autism is caused by a hodgepodge of phenomena, including viruses, bacteria, fungal infections, parasites, heavy metal poisoning from vaccines, general inflammation, allergies, gluten and even the moon.
> Some parents credit turpentine or their children’s own urine as the secret miracle drug for reversing autism. One of the most sought-after chemicals is chlorine dioxide — a compound that the FDA warns amounts to industrial bleach, and doctors say can cause permanent harm.
>
> “My son is constantly making a gasping sound,” posted one Kansas mother who claimed to treat her adult son with chlorine dioxide, according to screenshots shared by Eaton and Seigler. “He won’t open his mouth,” a Canadian mom wrote of her 2-year-old’s unwillingness to drink the chlorine dioxide. “He screams. Spits. Flips over.”
Jfc they're in Canada too
 
posted before but every time i read it i just don't understand how people are so fucken stupid to do this to their own children and think it's working
like it's one thing for the monsters who are pushing that crap but it's another when it's actual parents and wonder why their kids are fighting back so much
"oh my two year old wont take their dose of chlorine dioxide". yeh well in just 2 years the kid has gotten more brains than their parent and know it's bad for them
 
@Wipqozn MMS is on the very far end of the stupidity scale when it comes to alternative medicine
 
for those of them who are in the US, fuck their 1st amendment, if they spread this crap they should be thrown in prison for endangerment of life

@Wipqozn Hot take: the anti-vaxx movement is exactly equivalent to falsely shouting "Fire!" in a crowded theater. They should not be protected by free speech laws and they should be held liable for the people who died from not getting vaccines
Except replace the vaccine words with the proper context
 
@Wipqozn unfortunately i can't star this
 
@Memor-X No no, go ahead. star it.
 
10:48 AM
OKay well now I have to go, BUT ,I was hoping you'd star it @Memor-X. Then I'd cancel the stars, and go "Stars are reserve for NEWS ITEMS ONLY PLEEEEEEAAASSSSEE". IT would've been hilarious.
YEAR OF WIPQOZN BABY

@Wipqozn oh they're everywhere. People are convinced stuff like mms and chelation cures their kids.
Also the person in the article going "they need to ban her IP" just...i get what you want to happen but that's not how it works.
(okay maybe theoretically with a static assignment you could but that's a lot of work for that)
 
1:43 PM
first VERY partial results of Belgian elections are coming in
 
2:21 PM
Okay, more results are trickling in. Only a few stations counted yet, but they seem to be encouraging for me: the right wing party is losing votes to the extreme right wing party, but all other parties have an agreement to not govern together with the extreme right wing party
 
2:32 PM
@Nzall but would that be enough? just not govern with the extreme right?
 
@Memor-X The right-wing party already is in the government (or rather, was, before they blew up the government because of the Marrakech agreement), but they're not as extreme as the extreme right wing party

All I want for Belgium is not being full of racist asshats. :( And that's seemingly not working out now.

Any current uncertainty around the EU elections is courtesy of our ballots closing at 11pm
You're welcome
😎
also courtesy of 1 every 2 italian electors voting for populist scum
🙄
@Arperum at least you're in better waters than ours
like, you must be
 
Brown is far-right, yellow is slightly less right, orange is center-right, blue is liberals, red is socialists, blueish green is green party and purple is communists
So yeah, 44% of Flemish people voted for the far right or far-right lite
And that's even while knowing that EVERY party has agreed to what's called the "Cordon Sanitaire", which is an agreement to not govern together with Far-Right
at any level. As in, people have literally defected from their party to form unsanctioned coalitions with opposing parties so that Vlaams Belang (or rather their local chapter for that town Forza Ninove) wouldn't get to run the city
 
@Nzall NVA did not agree to it, and dewever has specifically mentioned that again today.
 
@Arperum Yeah, but even so, NVA + VB still isn't a majority
They're short like 6 %
 
@Nzall Barely, but yes.
Flemish I expect NVA + CD&V and OpenVLD to team up again.
Federally I expect a try to beat our own record of longest time without a government.
 
8:50 PM
@Arperum Is it possible for NVA to not be able to get a coalition off the ground and that the 5 center to leftist parties form a large coalition?
 
@Nzall I don't expect anyone to work with PvdA, but the other four could also team up currently.
 
Oh right, because those remaining percentages are from parties that are below the treshold
 
@Nzall I'm relieved that our own far-right seems to mostly hit a wall on federal or european elections. They're still much stronger than they were before, but at 11% it's still manageable.
 
Oooh, federally green, red, blue is currently possible. They have exactly the required numbers. Which is a terrible base to get anything done during their term, but it would be mathematically possible.

Northern League won in Italy
Thanks @badp

@TimStone you know what also works? impassible gridlock. people then get sick and tired of being in their cars most of the time and decide to walk or ride a bike
@TimStone isn't this how the GFC was caused?
